Gary- Thanks a lot for sharing how you use the D800E and Live View. Interesting approach. I assume you do the Spot Metering hand-held just to be sure you can get the image you want before you go to the trouble of putting the camera on a tripod--right? Can you share your reason for always using Exp. Comp set to -.3 to -.7 when bracketing and stacking? Is this from experience?
Again, thanks for sharing. I also looked at your website and a lot of your images. Very nice. You do some really great work. Glad to have found your site.
